Midwestern native Hepatica whose name has been changed to Anemone acutiloba or some prefer Anemone nobilis var. acuta. We cling to Hepatica, kicking and screaming. These are from seed from the unparalleled collection at Ashwood Nurseries and are not wild collected plants.
Rare and distinctive species endemic to the island of Ulleungdo off the coast of Korea evolving from the mainland species, H. asiatica - a great example of island species evolution. The biennial leaves are very large. Small white to palest pink flowers backed by a stylin' green involucre.
Choice selection with ruffled heavily marbled leaves and light pink flowers. You normally grow Hepatica for the early spring flowers and any foliar enhancement is pure gravy but with Cremar, flowers bow their heads to the majesty of the leaves. Quite a choice plant and does well in light shade with decent drainage.
Ashwood Nursery's strain of Severin Schlyter's compact 'Bibo' selection. Strain refers to seedlings grown from seed collected from the clone 'Bibo' which is indicated by the ex. Strictly speaking, only divisions and not seedlings can be called 'Bibo' so in this case, keep the ex!
Our own flowering divisions from a plant bequeathed us from the former garden of plant-obsessed Marian Raitz. This Japanese selection is a fully pink double and double means the flowers last longer than the typical single fertile flowers. Ideal for cool greenhouse pot culture or mild gardens.
These Japanese versions of the European nobilis are ones we have grown from seed and have been hoarding for a few years but since there is no room left in the Hepatica house, we must send a few of our kids out into the world. Each plant is different from pale blue to purple and we get to pick.
These Japanese versions of the European nobilis are ones we have grown from seed and have been hoarding for a few years but since there is no room left in the Hepatica house, we must send a few of our kids out into the world. Each plant varies a bit but all are good pinks and we get to pick.
This is just a good clean form we have bulked over the years by patient, ever so patient, year after year, division. Clear white flowers with the subtle pop of red anthers and a marbled leaf to boot. This all combines in a presentation of exquisite subtlety that propels you back via state-induced memory to past intersections with grace and beauty.

To find fault with this bit of botanical jewelry would be to put on display character defects so profound that your friends would desert you in droves while making plans for your involuntary institutional incarceration. Perfect marbled leaves subtend appleblossom pink-white flowers of larger size than typical. Shade garden pizzazz.
We love this variety of nobilis - awesome foliage with very good marbling and equally fine pink flowers in early spring. The whole presentation is exquisite and obviously the result of judicious honing of extraneous elements over the course of untold millenia. Tom Hobbs - put this in your Jewelbox Garden!
Very choice selection not often available but we have some very nice plants. This has rich blue flowers in profusion during those often grim early spring days. This is an overachiever in the shade garden and often eats lunch alone as no one likes a show off but we do so we feed it cow poop.
These were shared with us by Kelly's mentor and fair to say, hero, Steve Doonan of Grand Ridge Nursery. A superb selection with petaloid stamens giving this a robust doubled appearance. Always hard to come by and much sought after, this will in time make a nice carpet of ostentation.
Fabulous hybrid Hepatica that in time will form mats of great lobed foliage with loads of light medium blue flowers in early spring. A durable plant with few if any faults. Great with Ranunculus ficaria and Hellebores.
Often white flowered, this coveted form has white flowers with a striking pink reverse to the backs of the petals. The leaves which follow bloom are impressive in their own right being quite large with rounded leaves and rich purple-maroon undersides. A mature clump of this confers the honorific Hepatica Highness to the owner.
